Is Westminster’s ultrafast broadband roll-out about to hit a speed bump?
The government wants to provide universal access to ultrafast broadband by 2030. The installation of fibreoptic networks has progressed well lately, but the hardest yards are yet to come
If the government is ever to achieve its much-trumpeted goal of “levelling up” the UK economy, the whole country will need reliable ultrafast internet connectivity. This is why Westminster is keen to roll out gigabit-capable broadband nationwide before the end of the decade.
